Seaming the Sweater

by Kelly

You'd think that the spring snowstorm would encourage me to finish my sweater project...but sadly, that's not true. The seaming has become problematic, because it seems to me that things aren't lining up properly. When I pinned it together, I had extra material on the sleeves. Gah!

I'm not giving up, just putting it off until Sunday. On Sunday I will devote three hours to looking it over again. If at that point I still can't find my way, I will call around to some of the local yarn shops and see if they happen to have a sweater guru on hand that I can consult with.

I find that when I'm stuck, it's better to schedule my defeat in small stages, rather than giving up altogether. Kind of like having a nagging boss, only I'm
the one nagging myself. That way, I'm less likely to shove the project in a bag or box and ignore it for the rest of my life.

In other news, Google Reader is shutting down. Not really a surprise...I've been wondering how much room they had to build this enormous archive, especially considering that it's free. So now I have to move all my stuff to another Reader service. I'm eyeing feedly...but strangely, it seems a really slow interface on the feedly site today. Hmmm...I wonder why?
